Mountain Designs heritage range

MD tshirtI certainly wouldn’t consider Mountain Designs to be a leader in the outdoor industry when it comes to sustainability.

But this range of t-shirts which have been produced to mark the companies 40th anniversary look good.

They are billed as being made in Australia and made of organic cotton, with ‘recycled water’ and water based dyes in the production process. There is no details on work place conditions (Mountain Designs appears to not be registered with Ethical Clothing Australia).

MD says:

Our Heritage range of organic cotton t-shirts aren’t your ordinary tees. They look good, feel good and smell good thanks to Polygiene® Odour Control technology. All tees in the range are Australian designed and made using an environmentally conscious process from start to finish! 

Each shirt features a woven patch of the original Mountain Designs logo, originally designed by Rick White in 1974 and inspired by the Patagonia Mountains. Be part of our story with designs inspired by our adventurous heritage.

Details on buying the t-shirts can be found here.
